NRMA Motoring & Services

Mar 7th, 2023
The NRMA is Australia’s largest membership organisation, with over 2.4 million Members across NSW and the ACT.

Our legendary roadside assistance has made us a household name and remains the heart of the NRMA to this day. That’s because great roadside help keeps our Members moving, and everyone – just like the NRMA – was born to move.

We maintain momentum through our range of products and services, from keeping you on the road with car servicing, to local and international travel deals, getaway destinations with our holiday parks and convenient car rentals with Thrifty in Australia and New Zealand.

Our services, advocacy and advice empowers Members to protect their communities and at the same time helps them to flourish. Our flagship magazine, Open Road is the most widely read magazine in NSW, and our Member discount program is one of the most widely used.

We’ve worked tirelessly for almost 100 years to earn and maintain the faith of our Members, with the result that the NRMA is widely regarded as one of Australia’s strongest and most trusted brands.

We’re considered by the government, media and community as a spokesperson for road users across NSW and the ACT. From lobbying the government for sealed roads back in 1920, to fighting for the rights of motorists, cyclists and pedestrians of today.

The future for the NRMA sees great strides to reduce congestion, prevent breakdowns, support local communities through tourism and ensure equal access to mobility for everyone. Because at the NRMA, we speak out on behalf of not just our 2.4 million Members – but road users everywhere.
